The current development kernel remains 2.6.0-test9
, as it has been
since October 25. The slow, steady accumulation of patches (all
relatively important fixes) in Linus's BitKeeper repository continues,
however. One of those patches disables the IDE tagged command queueing
feature, since it does not look like that code will be sufficiently stable
by the 2.6.0 release.
The current stable kernel is 2.4.22; Marcelo announced the first 2.4.23 release candidate on
November 10. The time has come for testing of this release to help
ensure a solid 2.4.23 kernel in the near future.
